27 May 2022

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) — A severe weather risk on Friday could bring isolated tornadoes, hail, high winds and flooding to areas of the Triangle. The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch shortly after 6:30 a.m. It is in effect until 2:00 p.m.

A tornado warning was issued for Person County until 9:15 a.,m.

You can expect to see scattered showers and some thunderstorm activity Friday morning.

The main brunt of the system will arrive toward noon with flooding downpours being the biggest risk we face.

However, a damaging wind risk is possible as well, and even a tornado is not out of the question though the risk is fairly low. Hail is also possible.

The storms should wind down in the evening as the system pushes to the east, showers/thunder can still be ongoing along the coast.

The good news when it comes to weather is that this weekend looks great for outdoor activities you may have planned. As the system moves off the coast, we’ll see partly sunny to mostly skies in the Triangle.

Temperatures will rebound a bit, back into the low 80s and the humidity should be at fairly comfortable levels.

Dry weather and sunshine will continue for Sunday into Memorial Day. This should give us a nice extended holiday weekend.
